Storyline

Frank Nitti has a major problem: someone in his organization is leaking information to Eliot Ness and the Untouchables. They've closed down several of his distilleries and several members of the organization are starting to question Nitti's leadership. He decides to seek out someone who use to work for Al Capone, Walter Trager known as the Leaker, who has a knack for finding and closing down leaks in the organization. Trager narrows the possible list of leakers down to two people: Nitti driver Marty Wilger and his own brother-in-law Harry Mailer, a local politician on Nitti's payroll. Nitti orders them both killed but doesn't realize that Trager is out to take over the entire organization. Trager's sister, now a widow, has her own plans as well. Written by garykmcd

Nitti's Plumber
28 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Eliot Ness has been knocking over Frank Nitti's stills with increasing regularity so Bruce Gordon has become as concerned with leaks as Richard Nixon. So his version of the White House plumbers is James Gregory who used to be close to Al Capone and had a genius for spotting these things.

So Gregory is brought back and he starts his gumshoeing. Among others he suggests bumping off is his own brother-in-law Alan Baxter. Becoming a widow is not pleasing to Gregory's sister Cloris Leachman so she starts cutting her own deal.

Naturally Gregory is working his own agenda in this thing and in this instance Robert Stack and his squad just have to sit back and see it all implode around them.

This episode shows Bruce Gordon to best advantage, he may be rough around the edges, but Gordon's Frank Nitti is never a fool.
